MP Ben Zyskowicz has spoken out about the smoking dispute.. The survey also highlights the problem of aging, as the so-called baby boom generation begin entering the retirement age. "If I understand correctly, the view of the Chancellor of Justice, or the Office of the Chancellor of Justice, was that as the law does not specifically give teachers the right to punish students by ordering them to write essays on the
dangers of smoking, it follows that they cannot have such a right," he commented. Minister of Interior Päivi Räsänen (CD) also recently criticised the Deputy Chancellor of Justice for the same decision. See pages 11 and 12

"The way I see it is that the use of common sense in assessing these things comes into play because the evaluation of consequences may be taken into consideration when
estimating and assigning value to the assessment criteria," Jonkka commented. Student years, which have traditionally been considered as a carefree time, are regarded as peak years by only six per cent of the respondents. Zyskowicz did not see eye-toeye with the Deputy Chancellor of Justice for reprimanding the headmaster of the school for making pupils caught smoking to write essays on the dangers of tobacco. However, the conceptions vary notably according to the age of the respondent. Arguments about living in a modern culture that glamorises youth don't show in the survey, as a mere three per cent of the over thousand 18to 74-year-old respondents believe that childhood and adolescence, before the age of 18, are the best times of one's life. See page 13
Baby boom generation The average Finn believes `young age' ends at the age of 31, while `old age' begins at 74 years old. With fears of a larger percentage of the working population entering retirement, leading to increasing taxes and weakening of services, three of four respondents believe that the resources and skills of active pensioners should be utilised more than is currently done.
Coalition Party MP Ben Zyskowicz has criticised the office of the Chancellor of Justice for failure to use common sense and a narrowminded interpretation of the law. Most of the respondents in the survey consider life to be its best when they reach the age of 39.

He is a partner of Hedman Partners Attorneys-at-law, having offices in Helsinki and Tallinn and is a member of both Estonian and Finnish Bar Associations. When acquiring an existing business in Estonia, there are a number of different ways of structuring an M&A transaction. In order to encourage companies to invest in the expansion of their businesses, Estonia provides a unique corporate income taxation system, where Estonian companies do not pay income tax on the profit derived from the business activities. Some of these investors are targeting a second home (from summer cottages to manor houses) or for investment purposes. Many companies that have decided to relocate their activities partly or entirely overseas have chosen Estonia. So why has Estonia been successful in attracting foreign investments?
MANY FINNISH SINCE re-independence in 1991, Estonia has established a very effective democratic system and widely embraced free market economic policies and reforms. As a consequence, the moment of taxation is shifted from the moment of earning the profits to the moment of their distribution. IN CONCLUSION, Estonia offers for foreign investors an interesting alternative for business and investment activities.

IN ADDITION to opportunities for business activities, many Finnish private investors are investing in the Estonian property market, attracted by Estonia's proximity to Helsinki (2 hours' boat trip) and its relatively low price level. The most common ways are acquisition of shares or alternatively acquisition of business (enterprise). Further, in terms of e-services, mobile commu-

ONE OF THE main reasons for the Estonian success is the taxation system. It was the first country in Europe to introduce a flat tax system at the same rate for companies and individuals. Estonia is a country with a low tax burden, especially compared to Western Europe countries. Currently there are registered in Estonia more than 4,000 companies that have Finnish investments.

SEVERAL MPs have expressed
their desire to curb the quick loan companies' business more efficiently than the interest rate cap suggested by the government would allow, or even ban the quick loan industry altogether. Puolakka states that the phenomenon can be witnessed in Southern Finland as well. Subutex is used in the drug rehabilitation process.

ling places the use of intravenous drugs among young people has become more apparent," Puolakka says. According to Henriksson, price regulation, rather than a blanket ban on the industry, is a more efficient tool to limit the supply of quick loans, because the ban would have to be very narrowly defined. Inspector Markku Nisula has however told Helsingin Sanomat that Kataja is not suspected of a criminal offence in relation to not reporting bribery attempts. "It is no wonder to me, that a majority of the feedback I have
L E H T I K U VA / T E E M U S A L O I N E N

belongs to the advisory board of Nordea Bank. According to Romppu, Lapland's substance and drug habilitation clinic, most users of cannabis in Lapland in the early 21st century were young adults. On Tuesday, Minister of Justice Anna-Maja Henriksson (SFP) tried to ease MPs' concerns by presenting a proposal which would place a 51 per cent interest rate cap for loans under 2,000 euro. With a single phone call you can make an appointment with an oncologist. On his own behalf, Kataja told the paper that the Nordea advisory board is not a decision-making body of the bank. "There are no grounds to suspect Kataja of any crimes, but elsewhere the matter must be investigated further," Nisula said.

Substance worker Johanna Puolakka says that the use of cannabis is increasing, especially among minors, which is worrying as it may lead to the abuse of harder substances. "The conditions should just be such that they will not further jeopardise the positions of those driven to a spiral of debt due to poor judgment or a difficult situation," Lohela said. Those who start to abuse cannabis at the ages of 1415 may move on to take Subutex intravenously. MP Maria Lohela (PS), from Turku, considered not banning the quick loan business a good thing. Sirpa Paatero (SDP) wanted more aggressive action, including the complete ban on quick loans, disallowing ad-
vertising, or at least handing over the supervision of the quick loan companies to the Financial Supervisory Authority. Henriksson also felt that circumventing the ban would be very easy. Hovi told Satakunnan Kansa on Friday, that he himself does not represent any quick loan business, though he has some as clients. One of the charged was involved in the making of the film Reindeerspotting, which is a documentary on drug abusers in Rovaniemi. "It's good to restrict unreasonable terms. Samuel Hovi, an entrepreneur from Helsinki, wanted the police to examine whether Kataja's decision to not report an attempted bribery is against the law. You will have your own personal physician and dedicated treatment team who will support you throughout your treatment process. From now on, the quick loan interest rate cap will be handled by the Parliament's Commerce Committee.
Kataja tells of threats MP Sampsa Kataja (NCP), who motioned the proposal on banning quick loans, said that as a result, there had been attempts to threaten, blackmail and bribe him. A senior physician at the A-clinic foundation has stated that sociopolitical and educational reasons and changes in cityscape may have been influential factors. With this I don't mean our western neighbour, but that the company culture and attempts to influence are anything but western," Kataja said. In my opinion it would have been better to ban quick loans altogether," Pirkko RuohonenLerner (PS) said. Our stateof-the-art hospital is conventionally located in Helsinki, Finland offering direct access from major cities. According to Kataja, certain businesses in Turku, and
their directors, have also assumed the code of conduct of "the eastern neighbour." Kataja decided to not report the matter to the police, but his decision resulted in a request to investigate whether failure to report such methods was a crime in itself. A drug cartel for Buprenorphine, also known as Subutex, has been a problem in Rovaniemi for years. "We want the consumer to be able to access loans, also smaller loans, with more reasonable terms in the future," Henriksson said. We provide diagnosis and treatment quickly, with a leading expert team ensuring that we remain at the forefront of the latest clinical research and treatment developments

Her play Puhdistus (Purge) was then turned into a hugely successful novel, which has just been released as a movie.

Of course, one could always do it as physical exercise. The robot can, for example, be asked about the weather or the news of the day. The legislation, which became law on 1 March this year, is aimed at promoting civic activity and requires 50,000 signatories for a pro-
posed initiative, which then must considered by parliament for debate. The Academy of Finland has funded the Motive research programme, which has already developed a robot that recognises basic human facial expressions. In some Ostrobothnian towns the western region holds most of Finland's fur farms up to 10 to 20 per cent of the towns' tax incomes are provided by the fur industry, STT reports this week.
Animalia believes that "fur farming is unsustainable from an animal-rights perspective, ethical perspective, and environmental perspective" and that the best way to stop fur farming in Finland is through the new legislative method made possible earlier this year. The technology is believed to provide assistance in caring for the elderly, for
example. "Finns have not stopped reading the print newspapers. This is already possible with current technology, but robots will evolve even greater intelligence in the future." However, up to 70 per cent of natural communication between humans consists of expressions and gestures. "In medicine, machine vision has aided in the diagnosis of diseases."

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Sampo Bank predicts Finland will enter recession during 2012's third quarter and this week saw three Finnish companies announce major job cuts. The group's chairperson Sami Säynevirta says he believes it is only a matter of time before fur farming ends in Finland. For example, they are tireless. For their part, the Finnish Fur Breeders' Association (STKL) say they comply with the Finnish Animal Welfare Act and similar EU directives. Just as with humans, the identification is not entirely error-free. However, Finns are increasingly comfortable with multi-platform newspapers: the same issue may be read over breakfast in print and later in digital format at the workplace. The machine has been successful in identifying micro-expressions that last only a fraction of a second. According to executives interviewed by the Finnish Chamber of Commerce, cost-efficiency in municipalities cannot be enhanced without curtailing the current notice period of five years. Although Minotaurus does not recognise individuals, it does well in evaluating a person's age and sex. HT-STT

"Using the robot as a lie detector, for example, would require a lot more research. "There are already vacuum cleaner robots in homes. It is used, for example, in gesture-controlled games, bottle return machines and video cameras," Pietikäinen says. Moreover, the problem may aggravate in the event of municipal consolidations, they caution, which could leave some municipalities with a significant number of excess employees for a prolonged period of time. Social robots have been projected to become more common in households in the next ten to fifteen years. Identifying facial expressions is a key part of the research that aims to develop natural communication between man and machine. A lot of other information is required, such as the identification of physiological signals."

On Bulevardi in Helsinki, a man killed his wife and two daughters and in Pomarkku, a father killed his three daughters and himself. According to police from the Central Finland district, the sequence of events and the motive for the act still need further investigation. The ministerial group is looking into the possibility of making an amendment to the Child Welfare Act to this effect. United Brotherhood was formed a couple of years ago when the notorious Rogues Gallery, Natural Born Killers and M.O.R.E. A criminal investigation was started after the parents of a 14-yearold girl became aware of communication between the girl and the men in autumn 2011. The man is believed to have been involved in retrieving a 1.6-kilo batch of amphetamine from a drug cache in Raisio. "The police for instance may submit child welfare notifications. This would mean that even before entering a home, they could find out if any steps have been taken since their last visit," says Tarja Mankkinen, Director of the Internal Security Secretariat. This would allow the authorities that submitted the notification to step in if a case they consider serious does not raise a response from the child welfare services within a certain time limit. According to Yle, the claims rest on the Supreme Administrative Court's decision in 2009 to impose fines on seven asphalt companies for illegal co-operation.

The Orivesi school shooter not of sound mind
A man who shot into a classroom in Orivesi in March has been found not of sound mind. The men were also ordered to pay the victim 12,000 euro in compensation. It is alleged that the companies involved fixed their prices at the tendering stage, so that municipalities would be given no real choice in which company had a more competitive pricing, thereby ensuring the municipalities were always paying more than they should were the business really competitive. In March 2011, a young woman aged around 20 was taken to the then premises of the United Brotherhood on two separate occasions

IN THE future, an authority submitting a child welfare notification must be kept up-to-date on whether any measures are taken based on it, proposes the ministerial group on internal security. A 31-year-old man from the capital area and a 25-year-old man from eastern Finland both received a suspended sentence of over a year. The men had made contact with the girl on the internet and exchanges continued as text messages of a sexual nature. The ministerial group made their proposal based on a report on the backgrounds of family and child killings. During the last 18 months, there have been five family killings, whereas between 2003 and 2010, the figure was three. Two of the men had sexual intercourse with the girl, which constitutes aggravated child abuse. · One of the biggest problems was found to be a lack of communication between the authorities.

There seems to be too high a threshold for submitting a child welfare notification and the person filing a notification never finds out whether anything was done about it. Only the child welfare services will evaluate the need for involving the police, which may delay the whole process.

Kalske says that some passages in Hirvisaari's text might have been offensive and inappropriate enough to meet the criteria for hate speech, but his assessment was that they would not have led to prosecution. No one was hurt during the incident at the school, but the man had injured one person before that in Orivesi. It was not in the public interest to continue the investigation. A district court will make a final decision on the man's mental state. According to Mankkinen, legislation should be checked especially for those points that might interfere with the information flow between different authorities, putting cooperation between them at risk.

According to Haapala, who has led domestic violence working groups, confidentiality jeopardises children's safety at worst. The car industry, along with the Ministry of Finance, predict that 105,000 new cars will be sold next year. This would result
in a 798,000 euro profit in car taxes. To clarify the results, also information on the costs of a 5 km taxi-drive and a 200 km train ticket journeys have been included. The data was collected in the spring and early summer. Helsingin Sanomat has collected stories from Finns
living abroad. But this may well be the correct conclusion,' says media worker at the Finnish Embassy of Athens Jaana Oikarinen-Vasilopoulos, who is herself married to a Greek man. Haapala believes that the children's interests are often not fulfilled, be-
cause the parents are protected too much. According to Business Insider it is not surprising that most of those that made the list are from western Europe, where public transportation is well organised, efficient and clean therefore also more costly. SATU HELIN

Saudi Finnish relations
The kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Finland have enjoyed very solid bilateral relations since the two countries signed an agreement for economic and technical cooperation in the Saudi city of Jeddah in 1976. Saudi Arabia has a lot to offer to Finland to balance the trade relations as it is the world's biggest oil exporter, and its exports to Finland could be more than raw materials for plastics. Finland received the Saudi Minister for Education, Dr. As Finland is the world's leading country in education, and Saudi Arabia is paying very special attention to educating the Saudis using the world's top educational systems and methods, many Saudi delegations came to Finland and signed a good number of agreements that enhance the academic cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Finland. Mohammed Al-Angari, Minister for Higher Education in 2011 and Ms Henna Verkkanen the Finnish Minister for Education visited Riyadh last year. In 2010, the then Finnish minister for foreign affairs, Mr. Saudi Arabia and Finland share a lot of political views as both countries seek a more stable world where justice and equality are restored and applied, an understanding that ties both countries together even though their religious, social and political structures are not alike. The ministerial visits started a good tradition between the two countries. www.saudiembassy.fi

· Is the largest Arab state in Western Asia by land area, and the second largest in the Arab world after Algeria. Finnish companies should also be aware that Saudi Arabia has announced that, in the next 20 years, there will be investment opportunities of more than 600 billion USD, which means a very good chance for the Finnish companies to get a slice of these opportunities, especially in the construction and communications fields. · The Kingdom was founded by King Abdul Aziz Bin Saud in 1932, although the conquests which eventually led to the creation of the kingdom began in 1902 when he regained Riyadh, the ancestral home of his family, the House of Saud and he unified the country. Saudi Arabia is Finland's biggest trade partner in the Middle East, with a trade volume of 299 million euro of Finnish exports to Saudi Arabia last year, or 49 per cent more than 2010. It could be said that the bilateral relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Finland are at their best at the moment, as they are built on common interests and mutual understanding of each other's cultural, social and political structures. · The kingdom is sometimes called The Land of the Two Holy Mosques in reference to Al-Masjid al-Haram (in Mecca), and Al-Masjid al-Nabawi (in Medina), the two holiest places in Islam. The trade balance between Saudi Arabia and Finland was 276 million euro last year, with Finnish imports from Saudi Arabia forming only 23 million euro. Tarja Halonen, to Saudi Arabia in 2007 represented a new chapter of closer cooperation as she was joined by a big delegation of Finnish businessmen, who became familiar with the investment opportunities in Saudi Arabia when they met with their counterparts in the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce.

· A system smaller than one kilowatt is usually not worth installing in a home. The actual time is dependent on the size of the hot water tank, and the kind of heating system the house has. In a SATO HotelHome you will stay in a stylishly decorated apartment with homely comforts including a fully equipped kitchen and modern electronic appliances. According to Nyman, the spread of home solar power is prevented by the fact that electricity companies don't have to pay for the surplus energy that the households produce, which accumulates in the summer. Seppälä thinks that net billing is the most sensible and clear-cut way to encourage households to use solar energy. Nyman says the surplus energy has to be spent in the summer, because storing electricity is too expensive. He makes the point that solar energy can also create jobs in Finland, because it is more than just panels: the systems must be installed and they also need to
be maintained. · A one-kilowatt system produces just under 900 kilowatthours of electricity per year. "The role of
A FINNISH home's solar energy is mostly heat energy. Minister of Economic Affairs, Jyri Häkämies (NCP), wants to change the system so that households producing solar energy are reimbursed for their surplus electricity. Häkämies says that, because of this goal, it is necessary to produce energy in small buildings. · In the summer cottage a 50-watt solar panel together with a 150 ampere-hour battery is enough for moderate lighting and the use of radio and television.

Minister of Economic Affairs planning compensations for households.

ON THE ROOF of the row house are six solar panels, which produce a quarter of the home's yearly electricity consumption. Nyman points out that Finland is falling badly behind Central Europe in making use of solar energy, even though, in spite of the darkness, the sun is still a worthy source of energy in Finland: "On a yearly basis we get only 10-15 per cent less sun than Central Europe."
Solar energy · A home solar energy system costs at least six thousand euros. In Häkämies' proposal, electricity companies would be obligated to take net billing into use. His suggestion is a yearly net bill, in which the electric company compensates the extra electricity accumulated during spring and summer in the darkest part of the year, when homes must purchase electricity from the company. He believes that this way forward will also appeal to consumers besides the ones who trust in green values. The proposed obligation could come into effect next year. Nyman says a solar heating system pays for itself in four to six years. "Just the net billing would already give significant benefits," the minister says.

solar energy is completely marginal in Finland. Now those barriers are going to be cleared," Häkämies says. He will present his proposal to the government in the autumn. Additionally, some companies charge a fee for joining the electricity grid. Seppälä's home in Järvenpää is still a rarity in Finland. At present the energy companies decide for themselves whether to pay households for the surplus electricity. Additionally, the minister believes that the falling prices of solar panels will encourage households to produce solar energy. · In Finland the use of solar power is more common at the summer cottage than at home. According to Nyman, a household may get half of the heat it needs in a year from the sun: "From April to September,

Compensating for summer in the winter The bottleneck has also been noted in the Ministry of Employment and the Economy. This means that the amounts of energy produced and bought by the building are equal. Solar heat is used mostly for warming hot water. If something is left over, the electricity company snags it for free. Christer Nyman from the Association for Solar Technology estimates that there are several thousands of homes using solar heat in Finland. However, the companies have expressed interest in moving into the net billing model voluntarily, so according to Häkämies it remains to be seen whether the obligation will be necessary. So far there are no intentions of supporting solar energy with a feed-in tariff, a price guarantee like the one given to wind energy. 50,000-60,000 cottages use solar power. "From an economic point of view, using solar power is not worthwhile for households at the moment", he says.
Home energy production necessary The EU is aiming for all new buildings after year 2020 to be close to energy neutral. Most of the electricity is accumulated from the spring and summer sunshine, so at this time Jyri Seppälä's who is a director of the Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Finnish Environment Institute panels can also spare energy for his neighbours. · A summer cottage system usually has 50150 watt solar panels, and they cost 1,000-2,000 euros. Your stay will be safe and smooth. The price for the systems varies from a few thousand to six thousand euros. In Järvenpää, Jyri Seppälä is pleased with the minister's plans. We have to start this now." "Hooking solar power to the electricity grid has been difficult so far due to technical barriers and bureaucracy. almost all of the heat energy is from the sun", he says. www.satohotellikoti.fi. · A solar power system for the home costs, together with installment expenses, 6,000-7,000 euros per kilowatt. Christer Nyman, Executive Director of the Association for Solar Technology, estimates that there are only some tens of homes taking advantage of solar energy in Finland

BEST known for her work with seminal alt rockers Sonic Youth, Kim Gordon teams up with free jazz noise guitarist Bill Nace for a gig at Savoy Theatre on Tuesday 25 September. Directors may come and go, but when the big acting names start to drop off the cast, taking their characters with them, things begin to look a little dire. Furthermore, paintings and photographs by Rauha Mäkilä and photographer Juliana Harkki can be found on the second floor, along with Neutral, a workshop for schools that encourages pupils to embrace their inner fashionistas. Wisely deciding not to reinvent Bourne's memorable character, here Bourne is, um, reborn in the shape of Renner's pug faced special op on the lam. Furthermore, the Finnish Film Affair event showcases the latest Finnish feature films to international industry professionals from 25-27 September. While this all rings incredibly familiar, with screenwriter Tony Gilroy stepping into director Paul Greengrass' shoes, most of the original trio's supporting cast returns for another suitably visceral experience, along with newcomers Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz. Jacques Audiard's Rust and Bone closes the festival this year as Marion Cotillard's killer-whale trainer becomes involved in an unusual romance with Matthias Schoenaerts' tough guy. Opening proceedings this year will be Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and the Golden Camera Prize at Cannes. For those who cannot wait, a number of screenings will also occur before the festival opens, with Hayao Mi-
yazaki's Princess Mononoke a popular choice at the Outdoor Film Picnic, along with a series of festival classics screening at Orion for free. Lead Matt Damon has bailed out and been neatly replaced by the fast-rising Jeremy Renner. Under the guise of Body/ Head, the duo evokes Syd Barret-era Pink Floyd with a series of long and partially improvised jazz pieces. Performing in the Nordic countries for the first time, the duo hits the stage accompanied by rear-projection as they perform selections from a series of limited editions vinyl and cassettes that they have released together. No slouch himself, the Boston-based Nace is a veteran of projects such as Vampire Belt, as well as Northampton Wools with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.

The pelmeni themselves are round and perfectly cooked, each a tiny meatball swimming in a tasty soup with an al dente wrapping. Enamoured of the sauce, we carefully spread a tiny bit of it on top of each juicy pelmeni. Pelmeni are uncannily like their Chinese cousins, made of dough and a filling of meat or mushroom. There are several Russian restaurants in Helsinki, but their pricy and exotic menus (like bear meat) resemble little of the everyday diet of our Eastern neighbors. Not a bad record in the fickle world of restaurant business. Pelmenit serves borscht soup, pelmeni, seljanka, stuffed pancakes, Karelian hot pot, minced meat steaks, schnitzel and stroganoff.

In this series expatriates write about their lives in Finland.. For me, I think that one can still make the most out of it by engaging oneself with other activities like watching movies, reading your favorite books, visiting friends, or making calls to your family members.

A study experience in Oulu
TRAVELLING outside your home country for studies can be very demanding because it requires you to learn things about your country of interest. Most hotels as well as the Helsinki Tourist Office and Helsinki's General Post Office have a computer terminal. Both are open Mon-Fri 8-18 and Sat 8-16 but are closed on Sundays. On arrival at Helsinki the next day, I discovered that two pieces of my luggage were forgotten in Amsterdam (where we transited), and was told that they would be sent to my school
On Arrival in Oulu Because of the challenges I faced on arrival, I got to the train station in Helsinki a little bit late. There were others who had the same problem and anyway all my documents were still with me in my hand luggage.
Challenges faced on arrival in Helsinki Before my arrival, I could see my dream coming true as I began to put together all the required documents to embark on my journey to Finland.

For me, coming to Finland for studies was a good choice, because I had already read about the country the culture, weather, lifestyle and people. This was what gave birth to a new dream conceived by a Nigerian and the writer of these few lines, in his quest to acquire an International Degree in Information Technology abroad. 09 471 67371; Espoo: Jorvi hospital, Turuntie 150, tel. Post Offices. Now, studies have been going on very smoothly and this has provided a platform where I am now currently writing a blog, in my spare time, for my university here in Finland. At these public terminals internet use is usually free of charge. See www.forex.fi for more information. However, it can be boring if you
are away from your family during Christmas, most especially when you are used to celebrating it with them. I boarded from my home country, Nigeria, on 27 September 2011. In a number of Finnish towns public internet posts are quite rare due to extensive per-person internet use at home. Most grocery stores are open Mon-Fri 7-21, Sat 7-18 and Sun 12-21.

At first, trying to seek the right information on the right school and country for
studies was not a piece of cake for me, knowing so well that there is too much information online on the subject of studying abroad.
